I had forgotten how much I like to sketch faces, and although these aren't great, I think if I practice more, I may have to apologize less frequently.
I have been subscribed to The Retirement Chronicles for some time now. I was first attracted to it because the woman lived in the western UP and I am fond of all things UP (I was raised in St. Ignace, which is the first town you go through after you cross the Mackinac Bridge into the Upper Peninsula of Michigan). But after I read her for awhile, I was so impressed by her photography that I would highly recommend this site to anyone who loves nature photography. On her blog yesterday, she had a close up of an ibis with bright green on his head around his eye and along part of his lower beak. I was so taken by it that I emailed her to ask if I could use it as a model for a quick colored pencil sketch. She gave me permission so here is my rendition.
This is another that I drew only with the colored pencil; I didn't sketch in pencil first. He is not perfect, but I like the look of him. I drew this on another piece of the lovely colored paper I bought at Hollo's Papercraft near Cleveland, Ohio. Boy, would I love to make another visit to that store.
I just finished my hour and a half workout and the coffee was so old and smelly by then, I haven't had a cup yet. I think I will go have some cereal with blueberries and a banana and make a fresh pot of coffee.
I hope to have more art and whatnot for you tomorrow. Thanks so much for visiting.
